US confirms 2 embassy members injured in Venezuela

29th May 2013

WASHINGTON, (Xinhua): Two members of the U.S. embassy in Caracas, Venezuela were injured on Tuesday morning but not in a state of life-threatening, the State Department confirmed.

“We can confirm that two members of the U.S. embassy in Caracas were injured during an incident early this morning,” spokesman Patrick Ventrell said at a regular press briefing. “Medical staff inform us that their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. ”

He refused, however, to speak about the nature of the incident or other details aside from that the incident took place outside the embassy.

“My understanding is that this was at some sort of social spot or somewhere outside of the embassy grounds, but in terms of the exact location of it, I don’t have any details on that,” said the spokesman.

Press reports said a military attache at the embassy was shot in the right leg during an argument outside a night club.
